As we come close to the third episode of “Sons of Anarchy” season 6 airing tonight, we are also going to shift forward here to talk somewhat about episode 7 at least in terms of one simple thing: Analyzing the title. Don’t worry: We’re not going to drop any major spoilers here; the one that we are mostly referring to here is speculating over what the episode title could mean.
According to an FX release, this episode will be called “Sweet and Vaded,” which could be seen as oxymoronic. We know already that creator Kurt Sutter is fond of making unusual references or putting quotes from other languages into his titles, and this is something that he may be once again trying to do here. When we see the word “Vaded,” the geek in us wants to immediately start to imagine a face-off between Darth Vader and Jax Teller.
But, “vaded” is a term that a few of you out there may already be more familiar with than we are. We ultimately turned to the Urban Dictionary to try to figure this out, and they provided us with the following:
“An adjective describing a pair of people in which one person is high and the other is drunk. Often times when two good friends have opposing preferences between alcohol and weed they may choose to get “vaded” where the one who prefers alcohol drinks while the friend who prefers weed tokes.”
There does not appear to be a completely accurate word otherwise to describe it, and there is no feasibly anagram that works without adding or subtracting a letter. Personally, we also feel like have our fill with anagrams at the moment after dealing with the “Breaking Bad” finale and its “Felina” title.
